Summary
Fire in the heart is a powerful memoir by once a weak, bullied schoolgirl who reinvented herself as a professional wildlands fire fighter. Determined to forge herself into a stronger, braver person, Mary climbs to unmitigated heights for a woman in the field, eventually becoming a team commander of a Florida wildfire division. Filled with literal struggles for survival, tough choices and Mary's burning passion for what she does, Fire in the Heart, is an unflinching account of one woman's relationship with fire. But when she loses the man she loves to the famous Storm King Mountain forest fire in Colorado that killed fourteen hotshots, Mary faces the hardest choice of her life; to stay in the game or turn back and try to find the woman she used to be. It is both a thrilling memoir about life-threatening work and a meditation on identity, strength, bravery, bonds, and survivor's guilt
Summary
A wildland firefighter describes how she became a stronger, braver person by battling for survival and making tough choices in her life-threatening line of work that has taken her from the swamps of Florida to the interior of Alaska
